Excitatory amino acid (EAA) receptors are an important component of neocortical circuitry as a result of their role as the principal mediators of excitatory synaptic activity, as well as their involvement in use-dependent modifications of synaptic efficacy, excitoxicity and cell death. The diversity in the effects generated by EAA-receptor activation can be attributed to multiple receptor subtypes, each of which is composed of multimeric assemblies of functionally distinct receptor subunits… CONTINUE READING
